    I think we've already seen the last of Seyni in the 400m at the professional and international level.

    - No 400m since the 49.19 almost 2 months ago, except one inside Niger
    - Skipped the Diamond League 400m final
    - Ran the 100m and 200m in the African games, even though the 400m would have been an easy gold medal and Niger's only good chance of any color medal in T&F at this year's games, and the schedule allowed for a 200m/400m double with the 400m final being a day before the 200m heats
    - No indication of being in any upcoming meets on the pro circuit

    Why would an absolute novice that is one of the fastest of all time never run the event again? That would be very odd.

    Whatever the reason is, it may be the case that the athlete had no fault or choice in the matter, and if those who know the reason handle the situation properly, we will not officially find out the reason unless the athlete chooses to personally announce it.

    Indeed, reading between the lines, she may simply disappear.

    Alternative hypothesis: she used the African Champs as much needed speedwork prior to Doha. I guess we'll soon find out.

    It is strange, though, that she'd willingly miss the chance to win $50k in Zurich.

    Much needed speedwork? That's bordering on desperation.
